GVS,

where do you live? My nephew had a great kidney doctor, but he's retired, I will pray that your Dad finds a good one and he recovers quickly!

I'll tell you this I know he has a good son!

Thanks to all that reached out to help me. NJH members are awesome. It's comforting to know there are good folks left in NJ that are willing to help out. Thanks so much everyone.

GVS I am an assistant to a large group of Urologists in Morristown, if you are in my area PM me. Most probably your Dad will need to see a Nephrologist, we can point you in the right direction.

Dad had his kidney biopsied today, he's been on prednisone and stopped taking all other meds, kidneys are still at about 10%, He gets the biopsy results back next week.

Dr says he's anemic, he cant catch his breath and sits in a chair all day. A month ago he was fishing the flatbrook every day, he hunted a week with me last fall.

He's 70 years old and up until 3 weeks ago was strong as an ox.

Now he's depressed...thinks he's gonna die or worse become a burden. It's tough to watch your parents get old.
